Innovative New Legislative Research Tool

From the BeSpacific (Law & Technology News) blog by
Sabrina I. Pacifica, January 19, 2005:

"Joshua Tauberer, a grad student at U. Penn, has created
an amazing legislative tracking service,, which
won the top prize in the Technorati Developer's Contest.

The site's automated monitoring services are free, and the
data is obtained from federal sources including THOMAS
and the websites of the U.S. House and Senate. Users may
track bills, issues or committees, representatives, or topics.
Daily or weekly email updates are available for registered
users, as well as news feeds. The site also includes blog postings
on legislation, by authors registered with the site to have their
comments appear on the GovTrack Blog."
